Snake variants

Group Description

Snake games, also known as Worm and Nibbles, are those classic arcade games, where you feed a snake, which then grows, while moving it over the screen and avoid running into obstacles or your own snake tail. (See also: the Light Cycles variant made famous in the movie TRON, in which both players continually grow.)

Snake appears in the book 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die by General Editor Tony Mott.
